Blockchain builds trust, security and efficiency.

Second in a series about blockchain and B2B.

The Bitcoin frenzy has made it very difficult to understand blockchain technology and advanced ledger technologies. Until they are more easily understood, B2B interests cannot take advantage of the potential profits. But that won’t be the case for very long.

Blockchain is a sophisticated algorithm created for cryptocurrency. It drives a distributed data structure that manages electronic cash movements. It replaces the administrative role of a central bank or government backing.

The blockchain is the repository and distributor of virtual coins. Crypto-coins are not carried or handled, but they do trade, multiply and function thanks to the blockchain at the center. If you picture a business ledger that updates itself in real-time, multiplying that picture by billions of data spaces will give you some illustration of the way blockchain works.

 

For B2B companies, it can be a virtual bank—moving money, accepting deposits, completing transactions and more. This differs from online banking where your business is subject to regulation, monitoring, business hours and other restrictions.

How Does Blockchain Technology Help B2B companies?

  • Efficient supply chains. The blockchain is open to all members of the network. An IBM report notes, “This ‘shared version of events’ enables improved supply chain efficiencies, better multi-party collaboration, and streamlined resolution processes when exceptions or disputes occur.” It does not replace legacy chain supply software, but it engages new realities like the expanding data flows presented by the Internet of Things.
  • Improved sales processes. “The B2B sales process is based on relationships and responsibility,” said Jeremy Epstein, blockchain marketing expert and CEO of blockchain consulting firm, Never Stop Marketing. B2B sales relationships are ongoing, have a longer lifespan, and in general, require a longer sales cycle than B2C sales. “Trust is essential to B2B sales success and blockchain technology represents a way to expedite the creation of trusted relationships at lower costs” he continued. His eBook, The CMO Primer for the Blockchain World, points out that only 50% of businesses check buyer credit worthiness, request secure forms of payment, or both. And 81.5% of companies report employing credit management policies to mitigate trade risks.
  • Ease and speed. Joe McKendrick points out that, with this open access system, “blockchain’s value proposition is that it takes out the middlemen in transactions, enabling more autonomous types of engagements.” Easing and escalating the speed of financial transactions, blockchain replaces banks, credit card processing and checking. This reduces cost to B2B vendors and customers.
  • Beyond fintech. B2B Business Network believes, “Outside of fintech applications, blockchain has yet to make its impact felt.” However, contributor Derek Handova predicted B2B applications will catch on soon. In 2016, the writer saw it serving only the finance/tech world. But, he envisioned future value in real estate transactions, identity management, healthcare records and more. He called it a “Swiss Army Knife of technology.”
  • Safe and secure. Phoebe Luckhurst insists, “The future is in the chain.” But she also admits that the blockchain is only as good as its code, and codes have been cracked. Goldman Sachs agrees on its credibility, calling it “a faster, safer way to verify key information and establish trust.” And Professor Kevin Werbach at Wharton refers to “a new architecture of trust,” a system where you do not deal with an intermediary person, institution or authority.
  • Real savings. B2B merchants in retail or online need the cost savings promised by blockchain dealing. First and fundamentally, it speeds the transaction, immediately moving the customer payment to the vendor. Second, this speed ripples back through the supply chain and forward to the customer’s satisfaction. Third, it facilitates distribution and logistics, increasing efficiencies down the line. And, fourth, by bypassing credit card processors and other merchant services, blockchain reduces the overhead reflecting the price of service.

Blockchain is Picking Up Velocity

This technology may have the public confused. Most people had never heard of it until Bitcoin started to catch everyone’s attention. Virtual coinage and cryptocurrency are a long way from being ubiquitous terms, but that is changing fast. Epstein notes, “We are living in the ‘age of accelerations,’ as Tom Friedman calls it. In fact, there are studies out now that say millennials would prefer to hold cryptocurrencies over stocks. Granted, some of that is due to the crypto-mania currently taking place, but it is noteworthy.”

#Blockchain and the Rise of Transaction Technology $SX $SX.ca $SXOOF $IDK.ca

  • The last couple of years were owned by the ‘fintech’ buzzword
  • In a digital dimension, all relations are transactions, like it or not, that’s the way it is
Magda Borowik
Jan 14, 2018 at 10:15 UTC

OPINION

Magda Borowik is the special envoy for fintech to the Ministry of Digital Affairs of the Republic of Poland and the director of technology research at FinTech Poland.

The following article is an exclusive contribution to CoinDesk’s 2017 in Review.

The last couple of years were owned by the ‘fintech’ buzzword.

From startups to investors to government programs, fintech was everywhere. But within the last year, “regtech” and “govtech” have joined the conversation. Very often, you can spot the three in a thought-provoking proximity.

But, do they have something in common?

I believe they all can be described as transaction technologies that enable the secure transfer of value online – be it monetary or non-monetary value. Alternative financial technology, the use of modern computing, and also, technology as a means for building trust, all are tools that are needed by every government.

It’s no surprise then that applications are popping up in many areas – regulators and supervisors using DLT or cognitive computing, governments providing electronic payments for public services or social security. In Poland, strides have been made to harness emerging tech for digital identity, in such a way that it can be provided by the state along with banks and other institutions of trust.

Importantly, our national scheme of electronic identification is based on federated model, which means citizen’s identity is not only served by the state – banks, insurers and telecom providers are able to contribute, too.

This is an important distinction as transaction technologies are defined by the use of a special type of data, data that documents an exchange, agreement or value transfer between parties.

It’s a bit of information describing an event that includes the time and numerical value, and that specifies an agreement or value exchange of commercial or legal significance. Very often it relates to personal data and falls into the scope of banking secrecy.

A natural fit

In a digital dimension, all relations are transactions. Like it or not, that’s the way it is.

Administrations transact with citizens to provide them with trusted public services. They transact with businesses and governments, too. Sometimes citizens transact with government through business. Within strategic sectors, like energy or utility business, transacting is key.

In an increasingly data-focused economy, transacting data can even be said to be a special type of virtualized critical infrastructure. This is why states and businesses need to focus on assuring trusted data structures.

Blockchains and distributed ledgers, then, can be considered a tool for ensuring data integrity, immutability and trust. It does not mean we need to port everything to blockchain. But it can mean provide an additional, transaction layer to existing data structures, a robust audit trail on what happens on our critical infrastructure.

In this way, the possible role of distributed ledgers within digital state infrastructure too often goes unrecognized.

They can be a tool for licenses, rights and entitlements management. What the modern state mostly does is endorse, manage and verify ledgers of social relations; be it property titles register, ledgers of social security entitlements or identity ledgers – of who is a citizen and who can therefore participate in political dealings.

It’s a huge, important and largely under-appreciated and even overlooked function that state fulfills. Based on a social contract, the state is a large trusted entity.

How much we trust the state today is questionable, but the invention of distributed ledgers introduces a way of building a new type of institutional trust – trust in the computer code an institution operates, instead of relying only on trust in its human representatives. Human-to-machine is a new type of trust, which complements the one we traditionally put in people.

In order to progress with digitization, we need to ensure new type of digital trust, where appropriate investments are of highest priority.

Harnessing the potential

So, if distributed ledgers can act as a trust machine, what then?

The first step would be to audit our existing data resources – identifying, cleaning and structuring them in order to achieve organization. Then, a trusted transaction layer may be put on top. This means there won’t be an easy jump onto distributed ledgers for state-owned big data lakes.

Ensuring the integrity and immutability of random, inconsistent data makes no sense.

Still, within the scope of emerging transaction technologies, digitization can benefit from distributed ledgers in many aspects. Trusted data structures, arising from handling data with decentralized consensus mechanisms, can bring in additional value to many horizontal challenges, like e-commerce and legislative processes (where document version control and oversight is critical).

Ultimately, value transfer protocols and distributed ledgers may enable the functional digitization of public services, transforming the service stack together, not just rewriting each physical element to a digital twin. Particularly, if we consider value transfer protocols as digital public services, their use by the state becomes a bit more obvious.

In the coming months, governments around the globe will become more and more aware of the meaning of transaction technologies and the role they play in digitization. Having policies enabling experimentation with emerging transaction technologies will be key.

At the Ministry of Digital Affairs, Republic of Poland, we recently published a new industrial digitization strategy, in which transaction technologies are one of three key areas for growth.

Understanding requires experimenting, and experimenting is an act of humility – to acknowledge that there is no way of knowing without trying new things, making your hands dirty.

Understanding that truth is a first step, but it is important. I wish all government policymakers to act on it, in order to get well prepared for the future to come – sooner than later.

  • Wholly owned subsidiary, ZeU Crypto Networks Inc entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire all of the Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies assets of Qingdao Tiande Technologies Inc.
  • Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the proposed consideration for the Transaction is an aggregate amount of CND$150 million payable through the issuance of 150,000,000 common shares and 75,000,000 Shares purchase warrants in the capital of ZeU

Montreal, January 14, 2018 St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, ZeU Crypto Networks Inc. (“ZeU”), a private blockchain technology company, has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to acquire all of the Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies assets (the “Transaction”) of Qingdao Tiande Technologies Inc. (“Tiande”), a Chinese private company.

Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the proposed consideration for the Transaction is an aggregate amount of CND$150 million payable through the issuance of 150,000,000 common shares (“Shares”) and 75,000,000 Shares purchase warrants (“Warrants”) in the capital of ZeU. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one (1) Share at a price of CND$1.00 for a period of three (3) years following the date ZeU completes a transaction pursuant to which its common shares will either be listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America, or will be exchanged for common shares of a reporting issuer listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America.

On January 4, 2018 St-Georges (the “Company”) announced it was granted an exclusive global license to Tiande’s Blockchain and Smart Contract technology for mineral commodity production, trading and tracking. The Company assigned the License to ZeU in consideration of 20,000,000 common shares of ZeU. Whereas St-Georges owned 100% of ZeU with a license specific to the mineral commodity space, upon successful completion of the transaction, St-Georges will share ownership in ZeU, with global application reach.

We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with Tiande and their world class scientific team. Dr. Tsai has laid out a plan to deploy what many industry experts believe to be a world class Blockchain ecosystem that stands at the threshold of a new, far-reaching technological revolution.  The assets being acquired today, from the patents to the commercial and sovereign relationships and the significant human capital, are second to none in the domain.  Our Ecosystem is ready to be deployed in this quarter, starting with the SandBox initiative and quickly followed by the BigData suite of solutions. Finally, the biggest and most significant mass application project, The “Internet of Blockchains” (IoB), will be released before the end of 2018.  Response to IoB in every meeting with industry specialists has been significant and, in some cases, has triggered discussions into the realm of what was once unimaginable” said Frank Dumas, CEO and President of St-Georges and ZeU.

The Transaction is anticipated to close on or before February 28, 2018 with a definitive purchase agreement being entered into on or before February 5, 2018. The Transaction is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and certain conditions pursuant to the terms of the LOI, including the completion of a CND$20 million financing on term acceptable to ZeU and satisfactory due diligence.

Jan 12, 2018 at 09:14 UTC

Jalak Jobanputra is founder and managing partner of Future\Perfect Ventures, an early-stage venture fund investing in decentralization and digital assets.

The following article is an exclusive contribution to CoinDesk’s 2017 in Review.

2017 was the year that cryptocurrency became mainstream.

But what’s even more exciting to many of us who have been investing in the sector for the past several years is the development of the underlying technology.

Blockchain technology, which powers most cryptocurrencies, is in nascent stages. This past year, we started seeing some early proof points of how this new infrastructure can be used, including the announcement by the Australian Securities Exchange that it would replace its current post-trade settlement process with a blockchain system, after running both concurrently.

This reminds me of the process large enterprises went through in the late 1990s and early 2000s as they moved from client-server software to web-based software, transitioning their supply chain and procurement processes online. They conducted extensive return on investment (ROI) studies to justify the upfront cost of replacing current systems. Twenty years later, the ROI is obvious, but many companies viewed the risk as significant at the time.

I believe we’ll continue to see more companies across more industries in 2018 take a look at how blockchain technology can create efficiencies (and potentially new business models in the future).

When I launched Future\Perfect Ventures in 2014 around the thesis of decentralization, I was most excited about the combination of blockchain with other emerging technologies, including machine learning/AI, security and internet of things. In this way, I expect 2018 will be the year that we start to see the convergence of these technologies to truly create the decentralized computing and communications platforms of the future.

Decentralization, by its very nature, requires that more intelligence shifts to nodes instead of residing in one central server.

We will continue to see the development of semiconductors that are capable of advanced computing in smaller and smaller devices. As devices at the edge become smarter, the smart contracts enabled by blockchain platforms will work better with more advanced data analytics capabilities.

I see a mini-brain in each of our devices, ranging from simplistic ones to ones capable of processing larger datasets and making decisions based on that data.

The open availability of more data and smarter processing at the nodes will enable broader datasets available to more companies and people, instead of proprietary data ownership that currently exists within companies such as Facebook and Google. More importantly, that data will be diverse and representative of the world we live in, instead of being filtered by a few companies that reside in one geography.

While this may not all happen within the next year, we have started an inevitable march towards that future, one that will be even more transformative than the internet was.

China’s block chain industry is expected to walk in the forefront of the world

2017-09-05 07:30 Source: Economic Daily

China has the world’s largest Internet application market, block chain industry has to walk in the forefront of the world’s many favorable conditions. The diversification of the application scene has promoted the rapid development of the block chain technology. But at the same time, the speed problem has seriously restricted the block chain to multi-scene application. China’s enterprises need to absorb the world’s top scientific and technological resources, the establishment of China’s chain of ecological chain, to speed up the pace of technological research.

Recently, the Ministry of Industry directly under the China Electronic Information Industry Development Research Institute in conjunction with Beijing Tiande Technology Co., Ltd. initiated the establishment of the CCID (Qingdao) block chain research institute settled in Qingdao. China’s thousands of people plan experts, Beihang digital technology and block chain laboratory director Cai Weide become the project chief scientist. He believes that China’s block chain industry is expected to walk in the forefront of the world.

The block chain is a distributed database system that is difficult to tamper with and is hard to forge and traceable. The block chain records all the information that is traded, and once the data enters the block chain, even the internal staff is hard Which made any changes without being found. This feature determines its application with the Internet are inseparable. “Cai Weide told reporters,” the application of the larger scene, the richer, block chain technology and industry development will be faster.China has the world On the largest Internet application market, so the block chain industry has to go in the forefront of the world’s many favorable conditions. ”

Currently, block chains have been applied in multiple areas. August 28, the first block of domestic chain power business “media purchase” available, this is the world’s first block of chain power business; August 17, “Baidu Chang’an new days wind 2017 the first phase of asset support Special plan “approved by the Shanghai Stock Exchange, Baidu Financial as its technical service providers to build a block chain service side BaaS; Not long ago, the letter love the United States love the rescue account using the ant gold chain technology, with the algorithm and technology architecture to solve a number of weak Trust the trust between institutions, build a trust mechanism.

Cai Weide that the application of the scene diversity, is the rapid development of block chain technology, the biggest driving force. “Traditional block chain technology is slow, such as bit 1 second can only do 3 transactions, the Shanghai Stock Exchange trading volume of tens of thousands of penis per second.If you can not solve the speed problem, the block chain multi-scene application is not May be promoted. “

Strong market demand and technical barriers between the contradictions, prompting many technology companies to speed up research. In March, Beijing Tiande Technology Co., Ltd. released a new generation of block chain system high-tech one, in a clearing house measured the average transaction speed of more than 4,000 per second; its trial in the latest system, has done to deal with 3.33 billion per second Transaction. From 2008 to 2017, China’s number of patent applications in the field of block chain technology in the world, submitted a total of 550 patent applications, more than ranked second in the United States (284 patent applications).

Cai Weide that this does not mean that China has been the world’s first in the chain area. To really walk in the forefront of the world, the need to create an open ecosystem, to take the sharing model, absorb the world’s top scientific and technological resources to reduce the unnecessary competition in order to ensure that China is walking in the forefront of the world block chain industry.

“In view of this, CCID block chain research institute will be the joint financial research institutions, the national large data (Guizhou) comprehensive experimental area block chain Internet laboratory, Qingdao Tiande letter chain Information Technology Co., Ltd. and other units, the establishment of China block chain Ecological alliance, and will launch three national key industry implementation plan.

Cai Weide said, first of all to establish a Chinese chain chain sandbox plan. The plan includes an industrial sandbox, umbrella sandbox and regulatory sandbox. Among them, the industrial sandbox is under the guidance of the industry alliance by the enterprise self-test and assessment work; umbrella sandbox by the government regulatory support, commissioned by the authority to assess the block chain; regulatory sandbox is developed by the industry to a certain extent, and supervision After the mechanism is mature, the chain is evaluated directly by the regulatory body. “The first phase of the first launch of the industrial sandbox, will work closely with regulators to promote the umbrella sandbox and regulatory sandbox construction.

Cai Weide said that the second plan is to set up Qingdao block chain sandbox research center. The center will promote the China Chain Chain Sandbox program, through the government, financial institutions, universities and research institutes, industry funds and technology companies to study and expand the sandbox plan. The establishment of Internet of things, electronic payment, insurance, logistics, medical, customs block chain sandbox.

“The last plan is to build an open, shared block chain sandbox testing and monitoring platform that has built our first platform prototype to support block chain automation, supporting financial regulation, food and drug traceability, logistics tracking, payment Clear settlement and other block chain applications. “ Cai Weide said.

  • Preliminary report provided by the third party contractor hired to execute certain tests in relation to St-Georges’ research initiatives related to the extraction of lithium in clays
  • Extraction techniques evaluated can achieve recoveries between 80% to 99.9% with a purity of 99.9%. St-Georges is focused on total capital and operating costs with a green foot print
  • First stage of the mandate given to Dundee Sustainable Technologies (CSE:DST) was to characterize the material from the Bonnie Claire Lithium Property – provided by Iconic Minerals Ltd (TSX-V: ICM)

Montreal, Quebec / December 27, 2017 – St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX)(OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to release the findings of the preliminary report provided by the third party contractor hired to execute certain tests in relation to St-Georges’ research initiatives related to the extraction of lithium in clays.

The first stage of the mandate given to Dundee Sustainable Technologies (CSE:DST) was to characterize the material from the Bonnie Claire Lithium Property – provided by Iconic Minerals Ltd (TSX-V: ICM) – and to test it using currently knowns extraction techniques, commercially deployed or known in the public domain from academic research. St-Georges will work strategically with all the potential suppliers to optimize for total cost of ownership and develop a green foot print. This will include solvent extraction, membranes and electrolysis to make a lithium product that meets or exceeds industry standards.

The extraction techniques evaluated can achieve recoveries between 80% to 99.9% with a purity of 99.9%. St-Georges is focused on total capital and operating costs with a green foot print. The ecological focus is achieved, in part, by converting by products into saleable forms. St-Georges management is encouraged by the recent developments and is now looking to expand the scope of its analysis in regards to what might be patentable in its extraction methods.

The economic nature of St-Georges proposed technology in relation to the Bonnie Claire project cannot be established prior to the definition of a NI 43-101 Resources Estimate and a Preliminary Economical Assessment of the Bonnie Claire Project. However, the characterization of the material provided by Iconic to St-Georges allows for a certain amount of limited hypothesis. The high percentage of silica and alumina characterized in the material processed from Bonnie Claire makes an already interesting concentration of lithium stand out in the remaining segregated material. The report also hint at are other elements that might be worth recovering like potassium and other agricultural focused by products. The next phase of process optimization will be initiated in January. St George is encouraged by the initial characterization results.

Enrico Di Cesare, St-Georges’ director and vice-president research & development commented: “We are looking forward to working closely with the Iconic exploration team and characterizing and testing the results in parallel of their exploration effort on Bonnie Claire. Our technical team is looking forward to optimizing the process for recovery of lithium and salable by-products with a focus on being ecologically green”.

“(…) Our R&D initiative related to lithium bearing clay is progressing well. Shareholders and stakeholders need to keep in mind however that we still have more challenges in the near future. The next 2-3 months will be critical for the development of the lithium-in-clay (LiC) extraction process. It’s important to note when studying the history of science that a significant amount of disruptive technologies never made it outside of a controlled laboratory environment. The demonstration of commercial scalability is still the make or break milestone that we need to secure and we do not have any guarantee of success at this point in time. If that milestone is achieved, we will then have the privilege of embarking into the exciting endeavor of bringing a mine to production. (…) over the months and years period that this task might entails” – said St-Georges’ CEO Frank Dumas.
